Lagrein is one of the three indigenous varieties in Alto Adige. He is related to the Teroldego and Syrah. Typical for this species are the dark red color and fruity berry flavors that are paired with spicy-resinous notes of chocolate, tobacco and forest floor.
A relatively milde winter was followed by a dry March and a dry and warm April, and flowering set in somewhat earlier than usual. There were no long heatwaves in the summer. In spite of this, the head start in the vegetation cycle became shorter and shorter up to the harvest, and the first grapes were harvested at the beginning of September, with the last load reaching the winery on October 9.
The deep garnet-red color announces a exceptional Lagrein. The lively bouquet surprises with freshness and enchants with notes of dark berries of dark berries, roasted aromas and dark chocolate. Strong, round tannins caress the palate in a harmonious, elegant taste experience. The finish is long, pleasant and leaves a long-lasting impression.
This Lagrein reveals its full potential particularly well with powerful dishes, especially grilled or braised red meat. Its elegant tannins harmonize perfectly not only with hearty game dishes, but also with tasty cheeses.
After a two-week maceration and malolactic fermentation in small wooden barrels, this particular Lagrein matures for a further 18 months in barriques. After a brief harmonization in steel tanks, the wine was lightly filtered and carefully bottled in May 2022.
The vineyard is situated on a not too steep slope with south-east exposure at around 250 meters above sea level. The loamy-sandy limestone gravel soil gives the grapes strength and depth. These 25-year-old vines produced particularly high-quality grapes in 2020. The unique microclimate in these locations ensures that the wine impresses with plenty of power, aromas and elegance.
